The Split Season 3: The Split, the hit BBC One courtroom drama, will come back for its third and final season, with the show creator Abi Morgan directing the last episode.
The first teaser trailer teases plenty of conflict between Nicola Walker’s Hannah and husband Stephen Mangan’s Nathan. He appears to have moved on by entering into a relationship with Kate, played by Lara Pulver, a child psychologist.
The Split Season 3 is almost here, bringing us back to the world of London’s high-end divorce circuit for the final time.
What is The Split All About?
Following the reappearance of their estranged father after a 30-year absence, the Defoes, a family of female divorce lawyers, are compelled to confront their history.
The plot of The Split Season 3
In the upcoming episodes, what can Hannah and her friends expect? We can’t wait to find out, but in the meantime, you can look at the trailer video to get a sense of what to expect.
We rejoin Hannah and Nathan ten months later, in the ruins of their once rock-solid 20-year marriage, after a terrible end to season two when their marriage came apart.
Both lawyers have been respectfully negotiating their divorce and have achieved an agreeable deal, but Hannah realizes what she’s about to lose.
However, any prospect of being friendly fades when a surprising revelation dramatically raises the stakes. Is it too late to mend their rift?
The third season will continue to explore the Defoe sisters’ complicated lives, particularly Hannah and Nathan’s separation.
Hannah’s affair with Christie was uncovered in season two, and the couple’s relationship fell apart. After ten months of respectfully discussing their separation, the two divorce lawyers appear to have struck an acceptable arrangement — until a bombshell revelation dramatically redraws the battle lines.
And according to BBC, “the most dramatic and heartbreaking series to date, as we watch a divorce lawyer confronted with her own divorce,” creator Abi Morgan, who is also making her directorial debut for the third and final season, “is set to conclude proceedings with the most dramatic and heartbreaking series to date.”
